What Customers Are Saying

"Wayfinder allows us to increase vessel utilization and efficiency, ensuring that we balance profitability with emissions reduction objectives. By using Wayfinder's data and voyage optimization, we've seen efficiency gains in the range of 4.5% on dedicated voyages, which translates into as many as 14 additional sailing days per year per vessel.”

James Marshall

Vice President

“The Sofar Ocean Spotter buoys give us a new tool in monitoring, and reporting to the public, the conditions on the Great Lakes. Their small size, relatively low cost and ease of deployment make them attractive solutions for difficult locations.”

Andrew Barnard

Director, Michigan Tech Great Lakes Research Center

“The Spotter buoy measures the most important parameters such as spectra wave conditions, sea surface temperature and local wind, which no other buoys can. The real-time access and included dashboard and API are very useful to keep an eye on the data."
